On Friday night, Indiana played some of its worst defense of the season that nearly led to a disastrous home loss to hapless Nebraska. But Trayce Jackson-Davis’ fantastic second half, and strong work on the glass and at the line, allowed Indiana to escape with the win.
After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.
On the mics: Jerod and Andy
Among the topics discussed:
— How Trayce Jackson-Davis recovered from a poor first half to put Indiana on his back in the second half and overtime
— The defense. What the hell?
— How Nebraska’s gameplan was well-suited to taking advantage of Indiana’s weaknesses
— How Justin Smith paired nicely with Trayce in the second half to give Indiana the inside scoring it needed
— The key plays from Rob Phinisee and Damezi Anderson down the stretch
— Some coaching decisions that just didn’t make sense
We also point out a few meaningful moments you may have missed, go inside the numbers, and hand out our game balls. All of that, and more, on this edition of The Assembly Call.
